Mission of Culture of Caring:
The mission of the contest is to celebrate AutoNation’s 15 years in business by asking our Associates to choose a charitable project as our way of telling our communities that we are grateful for their business and that we care about the communities where we live and work. This contest is also an opportunity to raise both awareness and cash for the charities our Associates have chosen to work with.
The Culture of Caring Contest invites the public to vote with a click for the charitable project of their choice and help the charity receive as much as a $30,000 donation from AutoNation. There will be two runners-up at $15,000 and every charitable project will receive a $10,000 donation, how much your favorite market’s project receives is up to you!
And the Winner Is…
Congratulations to all our markets who participated in the Culture of Caring Contest in 2012. Each community project reflected the needs of each market and the passion with which our dealership teams worked to raise funds and awareness for their chosen charities was heartfelt and made us proud. All markets will receive $10,000 for their charity along with an award to proudly display in their dealerships. The winning project receives $30,000 and the two runners up projects will receive $15,000 each.
